If you’re planning ahead for an upcoming transport, you’re probably wondering how much your rental trailer will cost. There are many factors that go into that pricing, but we strive to keep quotes as transparent as possible here at Easy Car Haulers. Let’s explore how much it costs to rent a trailer to help you plan for upcoming expenses.
Factors That Affect Your Trailer Rental Cost
Before we discuss the average cost of trailer rentals, we need to review the different elements that will affect your price. Booking a small trailer for a day will cost less than booking a large trailer for two weeks, but there is more to it than that. Here are some factors that impact the cost to rent a trailer:
- Size of the trailer
- Style of trailer (open vs. enclosed)
- Rental duration – Hourly, weekly, daily, etc.
- Weekend vs. weekday trailer rentals
- Demand and availability
Other factors to keep in mind would be anything you may need for your trailer rental. The trailers we provide at Easy Car Haulers are packed with added features, including winches, safety equipment, extra straps, and more. If you need special equipment or tie-downs for your transport, that may add to the overall cost of the trip.
Average Price to Rent a Trailer
Trailer rentals cost an average of $150 to $300 per day to rent. Short-term rentals usually range from $25 to $50 per hour, but not all trailer rental companies offer hourly rental rates. Weekends tend to be slightly higher priced than weekdays based on demand, but weekly rental rates have a lower cost per day than the standard daily rate.

How to Save Money on Your Trailer Rental
If you want to save money when you rent a trailer, try to book early. This will give you the widest selection of trailers to choose from. If you can adjust the timeframe for your reservation to be on a weekday instead of a weekend, that could further save you money. Choose the size and style of trailer that best fits your transport needs. If you can get a large trailer that completes the transport in one trip, that may save money over a smaller trailer that you need twice as long.
Cost vs. Value – Consider the Whole Picture
Also, keep in mind what you’re getting for your trailer rental. Do you have to pay extra for straps or extended loading ramps? Are you getting a high-quality trailer that has gone through a rigorous safety inspection? Some big-box trailer rental companies advertise low introductory prices, only to tack on tons of extra fees at the end. Don’t be lured in by false price tags that ultimately offer lower value for your investment.
